If I have an exam in one week, how can I best prepare myself for success?
There are many actions you can take to best prepare yourself for an exam one week away. 1) Study small amounts (such as 1 or 2 chapters) each day leading up to the exam instead of cramming all the information the day before. Looking at the information ahead of time also gives you the opportunity to see where you need extra help-- and enough time to receive that help. Breaking up the information into small amounts each day allows you to retain the information better. You may also feel more in control and less overwhelmed with this approach. 2) Make sure you are eating well and sleeping enough to keep your mind sharp. 3) Make sure to take well deserved breaks in-between studying. 4) After studying small amounts each day for several days-- its a good idea to review all the information you studied the day before the exam.

In multiplication, what does it mean when number is squared?
When a number is squared-- this means that the number is multiplied by itself. For example: 2 squared is 2 x 2, 3 squared is 3 x 3, and 4 squared is 4 x 4. Squaring also means raising the number to the 2nd power.
Where do the following items go on a balance sheet: 1) cash, 2) accounts payable, 3) a vehicle, 4) cost of goods sold and 5) retained earnings?
1) Cash would fall under the current assets section of the balance sheet. Cash can mean physical cash, money in a bank account, money invested in a market fund, savings bonds, or certificates of deposit. This is typically the first section on the balance sheet. 2) Accounts Payable would fall under the liability section of the balance sheet since this is money the company owes and therefore is liable for. This is a current liability and is expected to be paid off within one year. 3) A vehicle would fall under the Property, Plant & Equipment Long term asset section of the balance sheet. A vehicle would most likely also have depreciation taken against it on the balance sheet. 4) Cost of Goods sold is an expense and would not be found on the Balance Sheet. Since it is an expense it would be on the expense section of the Income Statement. 5) Retained Earnings would be found in the StockHolders Equity Section of the Balance Sheet.
